Damaraland Camp

Since opening in 1996, Damaraland Camp has been owned and largely run by the local community from the Torra Conservancy, in partnership with Wilderness Safaris. This successful joint venture created the foundation for Namibia’s revolutionary community-conservancy model, where rural people benefit from living with wildlife. As a result, the area has seen dramatic increases in populations of elephant, black rhino, lion and other endangered species within the protected area.

Besides outings to view the impressive local rock art, and nature drives and walks, guests have the opportunity to visit local communities and learn about the unique heritage of the Nama-Damara, Herero and Ovambo people. This activity also includes a visit to a local farm at either Fonteine Pos or De Riet.
